WhatsApp New Disappearing Feature Will Automatically Delete Message After 7 Days


In a busy schedule, it often happens that we do not have time to delete useless messages from WhatsApp. As the messages are months old, it not only takes up space in the phone but also creates storage problems. No need to worry now if you also forgot to delete the message from your WhatsApp. WhatsApp is bringing a new feature for its users.


WhatsApp has been working on its disappearing feature for a long time. Users will be able to manually delete messages from the chat after seven days after the deappearing feature is introduced. WhatsApp is going to roll out this feature soon. WhatsApp has given information about this on its FAQ page. According to the company, both Android and iOS users will get the feature of deafening messages. It will also be available on Chaos, WhatsApp Web and desktop based apps.



Feature for both individual and group chat

WhatsApp's messaging feature will be for both individual chats and group chats. However, only admins can use this feature in group chats and this feature will not work on forwarded messages. At the same time, users will be able to copy and save the message through the message disappearing feature.


How Will This Feature Work?

However, enabling this feature will not affect previously sent or received messages. The user can easily turn this feature on and off, which means that if the user does not want to delete his chat, he will have to disable this feature, but if he wants the message to be automatically deleted after 7 days, users should enable this feature to chat. Or send audio and video.


What if you haven't read the message in seven days?

Even if a user does not open the sent message within seven days, the sent message i.e. unread message will be deleted. Although the message will be displayed outside, but when he tries to read the message by opening the chat, he will not be able to read the message. The user will only be able to view this message as a preview in the notification.
